Weekly Mix Tape

Mix tape
I  was very excited this week to download Electronic’s first album to my iPod (available via Amazon.com, not iTunes).  It was my first online music purchase – before then, I was just listening to old CDs that I had ripped to iTunes.  And truth be told, that purchase was just to replace the CD which I lost – or loaned – many years ago. 

[For the uninitiated, Electronic was a wonderful early 90’s band bringing together Bernard Sumner of New Order and Johnny Marr of The Smiths.  Neil Tennant of The Pet Shop Boys also sang on several tracks of their first album.]

But alas, as the iTunes gods would have it, no Electronic in this week’s Weekly Mix Tape.  Here they are – ten songs, shuffled not stirred, from my iPod.  Have a great weekend!

Rain, by Erasure
Cosmic Thing, by The B-52’s
High and Dry, by Radiohead
The Lake, by The Judybats
Someone Like You, by New Order

The Sky is Broken, by Moby

It’s been a while since my Weekly Mix Tape made an appearance here.  I had only about 120 songs on my Inno, a cool combination XM Radio receiver and MP3 player.  Creating a random assortment of 10 songs from the same 120 songs was getting old. 

But for Christmas Dad gave me an 80GB iPod Classic loaded with 4704 songs from his music collection.  It is so awesome!  Thank you Dad! (he reads my blog).  Earlier today I added about 800 song from my collection, with more to come.  Without further ado, the Weekly Mix Tape is back, and better than ever.  Look for it on Fridays.
